Chu Liuyue turned around weirdly. Why does he sound particularly sincere…?
Her lips curled up, and she thanked him. No matter what, this blessing sounded very pleasing.
Besides, she also wanted to be on good terms with this Master.
Seeing that Mu Qinghe doesn’t seem to be his opponent, won’t things be a lot more convenient if I can successfully pull him in to be my backer… Chu Liuyue continued walking outside and kept finding it weird in her heart. Even though this Master’s working style and attitude are strange, it seems like he trusts me for some reason…
She rarely felt this way about people, especially when the other party helped her multiple times.
Usually, the other party wouldn’t help her for no rhyme or reason, but in front of a person with such heaven-defying methods, Chu Liuyue really couldn’t relate him to that logic.
Perhaps he did have other intentions, but Chu Liuyue didn’t seem to feel worried or uneasy. Perhaps this is also fate to a certain degree?
The surrounding light gradually dimmed.
Chu Liuyue knew that she had already walked to the edge of the imperial mausoleum.
She couldn’t help but turn around again.
Passing through Mu Qinghe—who was hanging in mid-air—she could no longer see what was going on inside. Only the continuously freezing and toppling ice layer and the silently glowing lake water were especially clear.
The centermost room had already been completely frozen with soft icy light that gradually spread in all directions.
Chu Liuyue watched on quietly. She knew that this was the power of that person’s seal.
It was clear that he planned to continue freezing and sealing the entire imperial mausoleum.
After a long while, Chu Liuyue lightly heaved a sigh of relief. How much strength must this person waste… Outside Heaven’s Canopy, won’t this person be restricted if he uses such immense powers?
After a moment, Chu Liuyue’s lips slightly curved up. The current me still has a long way to go to reach that cultivation level.
Originally, she wanted to ask that person how he planned to deal with the other few people in the imperial mausoleum. However, she hesitated for a long time and did not speak up.
Helping one Mu Qinghe has already made me owe him a favor. If it includes other people… Mentor, you can definitely forgive me, right? thought Chu Liuyue quietly in her heart.
Other than Elder Ye, she didn’t care about the other people’s survival.
With Elder Ye’s abilities, it wouldn’t be a problem if he wants to leave here… right? Thinking of this, Chu Liuyue couldn’t help but take out the pyramid and carefully observe it in her palm.
It had completely turned black now, and she couldn’t see anything on it.
If I knew this earlier, I should’ve seen Mentor and the others’ conditions first… Chu Liuyue put away the pyramid, took a deep breath in, and continued walking to the other end of the black bridge with Mu Qinghe.
When Chu Liuyue left with much difficulty, the other few people that had already entered the imperial mausoleum didn’t have an easy time.
With Elder Ye’s protection, Emperor Jiawen wasn’t in too much trouble for now. However, that black shield couldn’t last for long as it quickly got covered by the golden ice layer, becoming as weak as ever.
The later gold sand that oozed out piled up and completely destroyed the black shield.
Elder Ye continued to evacuate with Emperor Jiawen. Luckily, with the glow from the golden ice layer, they could vaguely see their surroundings, and their speed was much higher than before.
Emperor Jiawen was really angered and indignant. Those people are still inside the imperial mausoleum! But I—Country Yao Chen’s legitimate emperor—have to be chased out of the imperial mausoleum in such an unkempt manner.
Without a mirror, he also knew how he currently looked. Luckily, there was Elder Ye around. If not, his reputation would be tarnished.
After escaping for some time, the speed of the golden sand flowing out finally slowed down.
Elder Ye then stopped and looked at Emperor Jiawen. “Your Majesty, are you okay?”
Emperor Jiawen’s face was pale as he waved his hands. “I-I’m fine… Just… just…”
He said ‘just’ for a long time but couldn’t finish his sentence.
Elder Ye coughed and averted his gaze.
However, Emperor Jiawen still felt very humiliated. “…Elder Ye, can we only watch on like this?”
Elder Ye was helpless. “Then, what do you think we can do now? The people inside have already taken the opportunity and—”
“I don’t understand.” Emperor Jiawen stretched out his hands and held his forehead. “I really don’t understand… How can the imperial mausoleum casually allow other people to enter? Only a few people know about the secret here. Other than Elder Ye and me, logically speaking, nobody else should know about it! But… they clearly came prepared!”
If not, how can they do it so smoothly?
Elder Ye paused and comforted him. “Your Majesty, don’t be anxious first. After all, the item inside should—”
Before he could finish his sentence, he suddenly looked up. However, the golden sand—which kept flowing out just now—suddenly stopped and retracted.
In the blink of an eye, the sand had retracted to more than ten steps away.
Emperor Jiawen was stunned. “W-what’s going on?!”
Shock flashed across Elder Ye’s eyes. “Someone is restoring everything in the imperial mausoleum!”
“What?!” Emperor Jiawen was also taken aback. “How is this possible? The imperial mausoleum’s structure is very complicated, and the entire arrangement inside is extremely intricate. If one wants to restore it… they need at least ten outstanding warriors to work together! But weren’t there only two people who entered?!”
Elder Ye’s eyes were glued to that direction. “No, you’ve forgotten that there’s still a possibility…”
Emperor Jiawen’s expression froze. “Could it be…”
A very soft and strange sound suddenly came from behind the duo.
Elder Ye immediately turned around alertly. “Who’s there?”
When he finished his sentence, he suddenly waved the fan in his hands.
His force harshly slammed against something. Then, a painful moan could be heard.
Emperor Jiawen and Elder Ye exchanged a glance. There’s someone else here? We didn’t even notice this before!
Elder Ye’s expression changed as he quickly walked forward and raised his fan again.
The tremendous suppression immediately overwhelmed that person.
At this point, a familiar gasp finally sounded in the darkness. “Elder Ye, please show mercy!”
Elder Ye paused.
However, Emperor Jiawen’s face completely changed. “Rong Jin?!”
Elder Ye snapped his fingers, and a bright light appeared in his palm.
The surroundings immediately became illuminated due to the fire.
Previously, he was worried that the fire would attract unnecessary trouble, but this was clearly unnecessary now.
A nervous and anxious face appeared in front of the duo.
It is indeed Rong Jin! Emperor Jiawen’s blood boiled as he hollered, “Rong Jin! You have so much guts! How dare you secretly escape from Crown Prince Mansion and come here? Speak! Did you follow Elder Ye and me all the way in?”
Rong Jin was originally terrified, but his mindset changed. Since things have already ended like this, what else is there to be afraid of?
He clenched his fists, straightened his back, and tried hard to make himself sound righteous. “Father, I’m Heaven’s Chosen Son! How am I in the wrong?!”
Elder Ye suddenly laughed. “Crown Prince, Your Highness, the true Heaven’s Chosen Son can directly enter Golden Inheritance Peak and control everything in the imperial mausoleum. There’s already one inside, so how did your Heaven’s Chosen Son come about?”
